Kim Stanley Facts
After successfully playing the lead in "Bus Stop" on Broadway, she was unsuccessful in her campaign to recreate the part of Cherie in the screen version, and the role went to Marilyn Monroe. Ironically, just two years later, Stanley won an Oscar nomination for "The Goddess," a role loosely based on Monroe's life.

She worked extensively as an acting teacher after she retreated from the stage. One of her students was Lauren Hutton.

A brilliant and sensitive stage actress, she was so shaken by the hostile press reception given the London staging of the Actors' Studio production of Anton Chekhov's "The Three Sisters", in which she played Masha, that she vowed never to act onstage again, and she never did. (The production was torn to shreds by critics who were accustomed to seeing classical actors, not Method actors, in productions of Chekhov.)
